In a random sample of 112 State College students, 41 students reported being current smokers.
a) Calculate the 95% confidence interval for the proportion of State College students who smoke.

  • statistics -

    Use a confidence interval formula for proportions. Here is one:
    CI95 = p ± (1.96)(√pq/n)
    ...where p = x/n, q = 1 - p, and n = sample size.

    Hint: x = 41, n = 112
    (Convert all fractions to decimals.)

    I hope this will help get you started.
